PV is an advanced technology which takes advantage of solar energy to generate power. Solar energy has an inexhaustible supply of clean energy and is an important means of improving ecological environmental protection.

In April, 2015, Zhengjue Temple took part in SNEC9th (2015) International Photovoltaic Power Generation Conference & Exhibition, which is the largest and most professional PV Exhibition by invitation, signed strategic cooperation agreement with Asian Photovoltaic Industry Association(APVIA) to together propel the dual environmental protection.

To achieve this, in 2016, SNEC2016 and Zhengjue Temple has jointly launched the event - “PV Journey through Zen Tea Ceremony on One Belt and One Road” to further deepen the unique function of the dual concept - mind and ecology - environmental protection in the one belt and one road area and the launch ceremony of “PV Journey through Zen Tea Ceremony on One Belt and One Road” was held during SNEC10th (2016) International Photovoltaic Power Generation Conference & Exhibition.
